The Ecoflac® plus IV container is made of a medical grade Polyethylene (PE) material which is chemically inert and toxicologically safe. It is free from PVC and DEHP and thus provides excellent compatibility with a maximum number of pharmaceuticals, in order to help reduce the risk of drug incompatibilities and to prevent from DEHP exposure. Our ConComp database provides compatibility information between IV drugs, container materials and IV solutions.


A number of drugs are known to interact with PVC and adhere to it [1]. Because of this sorption effect, IV containers made with PVC can have negative effects on IV medication delivery and may compromise the patient receiving the correct amount of IV medication [1].  Ecoflac® plus is free of PVC, to avoid dosage errors caused by possible interactions between the drug and the container material.


DEHP can leach out of the PVC material of the container into the solutions, when in contact with certain drugs[1].The exposure to DEHP can have significant health consequences for patients [2] [3]. Ecoflac® plus is free of DEHP as well as other additives and compounds that may potentially migrate into the finished preparation.
